20th April 1933 Friendly Match

Biggleswade 3 Hitchin 2
The first of two friendlies arranged between the Biggleswade and Hitchin Clubs was played at Fairfield last night (Thursday 20th April 1933).
The second match takes place at Hitchin on Wednesday of next week.
Did we ever find out what happened in the return match?

The return friendly resulted in a 3-0 win for The Canaries, on Wednesday 26th April 1933. Two goals from Wally Odell (a former Wader) and one from Eddie Armitage. I have the match report from the Biggleswade Chronicle of Friday 28th April 1933, which I can add if anyone is interested.

You may be ploughing a lone furrow but I am probably not the only one who reads "History Today" every day. I am convinced that I attended that 1961 game. Thanks Villager!
